When considering societal issues and Cross-Generational Architecture, we may encounter questions such as: what are the pertinent needs/wants experienced by different layers of society? How does migration affect spatial structures? And how can our design solutions be sustainable for future generations to come?

We have selected a jury panel for FuturArc Prize (FAP) 2023 with expertise and experience in these topics—and look forward to assess your competition submissions! Click here to read the full brief of the competition; and register now from FuturArc App!
